Ok phone not user freindly

For a basic phone,it's great. Durable and loud speaker with long battery life. The features are terrible. The predict word feature makes it impossible to add contacts. I tried typing "Al", my name, but it would auto fill with every word from altogether to alibaba but no Al. It took me 10 minutes of googling to figure out how to shut that feature off and I've had probably 6 different smart phones in the last 10 years. I almost gave it back to my current employer and said no thank you.

If you want to write any words that might be even somewhat offensive or totally offensive you are SOL, (which isn't a word you can write with the xp5 btw.) sh*t fu*ck a$s? Nope. not even if you add these words to the custom dictionary will you be able to type them. Other words you won't find on an xp5? Do. Yes the word do. If you try and write the word do in the middle of a sentence do you think it will work? Do you? Nope. The dictionary and how it works is frustrating.

This phone is awesome, very loud & clear. The reception is really good. Simple easy to use. Great to use as a modem for my laptop good high speed data. Worry free very well built. Only wish Sonim would make some upgradeable apps for the XP5700.

Durable is too weak a word.

I work in the Oilfield, and until i got this phone, i was going through more phones than most do in their entire life. 17 to be exact, including phones in Otterboxes and the Samsung Rugby series of flip and smartphones. all were broken in less than a month. some by moisture, by impact, and one busted into many pieces from a 16 ft drop (the Samsung Rugby Pro Smartphone).
While it doesnt have the nice fancy featurs that a smart phone does, it does hold its own weight, its speaker is loud enough that i can hear my guys on the noisiest of days and its easy to use.
